Yup. that about sums up the weather here this week. Several days in a row of 100+ temps.
But heck - who cares about my weather. I know y'all want studio news. And weight management news, right? and maybe something from TheBrains.
Fuh geddaboud it. (gasp) Dying here (pant)
Yes. it really is hot. today's temperatures are - oh - well - Now the weather dot com guys are telling me it will only reach 100 on Saturday. goodness, those people change their minds every faster than a squirrel caught in the middle of the road.
Water. I need water
Yes well, everybody needs water, especially on these hot summer days but I don't know why you're complaining. You're in an air conditioned house. I think what you need is a project
But it's going to be 100 degrees!
Actually it's been scaled back to 93 degrees and I think you're letting your imagination run away with you. How about sending it into the studio?
I can't. the painter is in there, patching that cut out in the sheetrock. And how's THAT for a segue into Stuido News? (giggle)
That's right. The painter is patching the 6 foot slice the HVAC guys left in the sheetrock as I type this. He'll be back tomorrow to sand and mud and again on Monday to finish that up. The HVAC company promises me they're hanging the split mini air handler next week and the painter assures me he can paint around the unit. By the end of next week the studio might be done!
I have to say "might" because I may still finish the floor. It's thick pine boards we had planed and tongue&grooved. It's exactly like the floor on the second floor of our house. These boards have aged beautifully with zero finish on them. They've never been sanded, stained or sealed. And they are so pretty. I"m so tempted to do nothing to the studio floors. There is a chance that I'll spill things on it on the painting side - but I might not - and after all - this IS a studio - not a living room. It would save me time AND $$$ and at the rate dollars have been flying out of the house, that's a real temptation. But I can decide at the end of next week.
You mean I will decide because I will be too impatient to move in. Just like moving into this house. That's the reason the upstairs floors were never finished. I just got a friend to help me move furniture into the bedrooms and voila! unfinished floors.
It's true - we just got lucky that pine ages so prettily
Heh heh heh
Well, miss smartypants RightBrain - you just go ahead and choose.
Anyway - the Saga of the Studio Quest is nearing it's destination. I promise there will be LOADS of photos to share in just a few more weeks. So - how is the weight management going?
I can't HEAR you
ahem. Well. We have not been as successful as we'd have liked
who knew we were going to be so anxious about DH and his iffy health? I sure didn't.
No. me neither
Me neither. In fact ...
right. not till the doc gave him the all clear did I feel the pressure lift
Yeah - Monday's report was an enormous relief. So .. now - no excuses, right? We're gonna tackle these pesky pounds and slack muscles, right?
well - we have already begun. We're doing good hard cardio 6 days a week.
And at least we ate within our points yesterday
Proud of you both - but what about that gift chocolate Monica gave us? Why don't we give it to the library staff? They're all slender and most of them are young enough to enjoy it.
It's in the freezer
That's never stopped us before.
That's true - in fact - we actually prefer frozen chocolate chip cookies
that's what I was thinking.
No fair! Two Brains against One!
LOL - but honey - you know how uncomfortable you feel in all our tight shorts. You hate that feeling.
And the longer we put it off, the harder it's going to be to get back into them
And we can always buy more imported chocolate. There's that really fancy schmancy candy store in Carytown. We can go there. If we really really REALLY need imported chocolate
Oh All Right.
Besides - we want to buy pretty new underwear and we can buy lots of it if we don't have to be prepared to buy two different sizes. The only reason the smaller size fits now is that it's all stretched out. C'mon - you know you'll enjoy shopping for new duds.
yes. I will. And honestly - I don't want to even own bigger sizes. I like what's tight right now - when it isn't tight.
Okay - then - the candy goes, right?
yup. Take it today.
So we're all good with this? More cardio, eating within our points and no frozen imported chocolates?
Yes. I think that's a good start
yes. I'm on board.
Okay - then - that about wraps up the mid-month report. Let's go out and own this day!
